FRANCE: 150 jobs to go at Jean Caby following plants sale - union
The union at Jean Caby claims 150 staff's jobs are at risk following the sale of two plants
France's CFDT union has claimed 150 jobs will go at loss-making cooked meats firm Jean Caby in the event of the company's two production plants in Brittany being sold.
The manager of one of the plants, Philippe Beuve, told just-food the MP's comments were premature. He said the company was in talks with staff.
However, the CFDT said today (28 January) "representatives of the potential buyer" had "announced in very brutal fashion to the works council that they estimate there are 150 staff too many at Jean Caby".
The statement did not specify the potential buyer was FTL.
Contacted today, Beuve underlined Jean Caby was still in consultations with the works council.
"I can only re-iterate that absolutely nothing has been agreed or signed and therefore any comments from unions or political figures are unfounded. Discussions
will resume with the works council in the coming days," he added.
